1 - Ask Good Questions
The most important part of a job interview is finding out if the company is a good fit for you. So ask meaningful questions that help you decide if you want to work there.
2 - Research the company
Show what you know about the company. Bonus points if you can find something that is not obvious or that everybody knows. This will help you show your interest and stand out from the crowd.
3 - Be on Time
The reality of this means, be there 10 to 15 minutes before. If your job interview is in-person, research where you are going, parking, how long it will take you to get there, and maybe even some extra minutes to go to the bathroom beforehand. If it’s virtual, make sure to have your computer charged and plugged in, have a pen and notepad close by, and be logged in to zoom or google meets 5 minutes beforehand.
4 - Dress Accordingly to the Company's Style
You should find this out when you are researching the company. If you find that they have a specific dress code stick to that. Go with a skirt suit or pants suit and a nice neutral color blouse for a formal look. If they have a more laid-back business casual style, go with that. But remember, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. We have a great blog on some of our favorite LOMA work outfits; check it out here.
5 - Communicate what you bring to the table
Make sure that they know what you are good at and show that you are determined and a fast learner. So what you don’t know won’t take long to learn. Look for examples in your life, either professional or personal, where you put to use your fast learning skills and were able to bring a solution to the table in no time.
Last but not least…
You go girl!! We know you’ve got this!!!
